  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts cooked and shredded
  • 1/4 cup taco sauce or mild salsa
  • 1/4 cup alfredo sauce or heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 10 tortillas medium, fajita size
  • nonstick cooking spray
  • toppings: avocado, cilantro, sour cream, guacamole, salsa, etc..


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or foil and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, stir chicken together with taco sauce, alfredo, cheese and seasonings.
  • Divide into ten equal portions and fill tortillas with filling, rolling tightly and placing seam side down on baking sheet.
  • Spray chicken taquitos lightly with nonstick cooking spray and bake 15 minutes or until they are golden and as crispy as you'd like.
  • Serve warm with any desired toppings: salsa, guacamole, taco sauce, sour cream, cilantro, etc..


Feel free to substitute 2 cans of chicken for the cooked and shredded chicken breasts. I used two costco-sized cans of chicken which was 25 oz. total. Rotisserie chicken with the skin removed also works great!
